Instructions on Prayer

1First of all, then, I urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for everyone, 2for kings and all those who are in authority,a so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godlinessb and dignity.c 3This is good, and it pleases God our Savior,a 4who wants everyonea to be savedb and to come to the knowledge of the truth.c

5For there is one Goda and one mediatorb between God and mankind, the manc Christ Jesus, 6who gave himself as a ransom for all,a a testimony at the proper time.

7For this I was appointed a herald, an apostlea (I am telling the truth;A I am not lying), and a teacher of the Gentilesb in faith and truth.

Instructions to Men and Women

8Therefore, I want the men in every place to pray, lifting up holy hands without anger or argument.a 9Also, the women are to dress themselves in modest clothing,a with decency and good sense, not with elaborate hairstyles, gold,b pearls, or expensive apparel, 10but with good works,a as is proper for women who profess to worship God. 11A woman is to learn quietly with full submission.a 12I do not allow a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; instead, she is to remain quiet. 13For Adam was formed first, then Eve.a 14And Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and transgressed.a 15But she will be saved through childbearing, if they continue in faith, love, and holiness,a with good sense.
